2024 Graduation Success Stories

Congratulations 2024 grads!  We honor our CASA youth who encountered difficult obstacles, yet dedicated their time and effort to bettering themselves and the society we live in. Way to go graduates! 

In May, CASA Mitch Scott was invited by his CASA youth to attend the youth’s graduation from the Richard Bland College of William and Mary. The youth was recently accepted to a prestigious college in Massachusetts with a full scholarship and will be attending in the fall. 

In June, Lynn and Bert Roepe’s previous CASA child graduated from high school and will be attending a highly competitive university on a Navy ROTC scholarship. He plans to major in mechanical engineering. The child had been in foster care three separate times over the course of six years and he and his younger brothers were ultimately adopted. 

Gail Shapiro’s CASA youth graduated from high school in May 2024 and moved into Independent Living. In July, he is planning to attend the DFS virtual academy as well as a summer bridge program at a local community college.
